    I admit that I found out about ┬┐Living Well Is The Best Revenge

    I admit that I found out about “Living Well Is The Best Revenge” by Calvin Tomkins through a past Spirit & Destiny Magazine issue. Belinda Carlisle was being interviewed and recommended the book. I felt an intuitive urge to go by Carlisle’s suggestion because she projected a sharing vibe of balancing earthly concerns with her spiritual life. I must say that “Living Well Is The Best Revenge” is a candid book that mainly centers around an upper class couple by the name of Sara and Gerald Murphy. In keeping with the theme of the title, the couple lives a rich life in France, but they also find time to spend with their children and the friends they meet in their new place. I admit that I enjoyed the features on their European travels the most and the pictures that include their various colorful friends. The Murphys also endured tragedy in their lives as well. For instance, page 125 features the tragic saga of The Murphys losing both sons before they reached adulthood. “Living Well Is The Best Revenge” by Calvin Tomkins is best for those who are curious about the lives of wealthy families who resided in Europe prior to the 1950’s.
